When I went to break this afternoon I checked my phone - I had two texts and a phone message waiting. I never see that type of activity so I knew something was up. It was my wife, she was okay but she got a flat tire just down the road after leaving work and was waiting for Triple-A to come and change her tire so she could get home. I gave her a call while she was waiting for them and after some discussion we decided to go ahead and get new tires, the cheapest available and only on the front. I called the shop right away and arranged for service on Monday.
See, we recently paid off my vehicle so we have no car payment at all now. We have been discussing getting rid of her 1997 low riding ashtray sedan for a newer vehicle. We have had it since 2000, so for 15 years now and it has definitely seen better days. With my broken body it is barely usable for me, I can barely get in and out of the tiny and low car anymore. The plan is to acquire a new vehicle for me so my wife can drive the car I drive now.

Meanwhile, on to a story my wife - Miss Trouble Walking herself - told me about her younger days after we got home from dinner and drinks tonight:
She and her bff Terry dropped out of a night school gym class after getting caught not walking during an independent walking exercise class, 45 minutes, for school credit, on their own, outside. She said they would walk to the car, parked a block away out of sight, then drive around and smoke, listen to music, you know - do what kids would do. Then they would try to come back like nothing happened - and they got caught.
Like, just take a fucking walk around a block or two, girls! Wow. Youth - we've all been there.
We had a good laugh, and there is more detail to the story but she can post it herself if she wishes. She has always had an open invitation to post but has yet declined.
I hope every one of you has a great weekend! LLAP
